Will 285/30/19 Clear w/ 19x9.5 and ET22?

Some of you may have seen my other thread about my wheel/tire combo not clearing. I have another set of wheels on order in 19x8.5/19x9.5 with ET20/ET22, respectively. I'm looking to run Nitto Invo 245/35/19's and 285/30/19's. Does anyone see any problems for clearance with the car lowered on Eibachs? I'll step down to a 275/30/19 if I have to just for reassurance of clearance, but I don't want to give up anymore tire height than I have to over stock.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Trevor

Are V710's offsets THAT aggressive? Send a PM to Boostedtwin...i'm pretty sure he's running the same tire sizes, with BBS CH (similar offsets with spacers) and H&R springs which lower more than the Eibachs.

Those will clear with ease in the rear man. I have 10.5 +20 with 285/35/19s and they clear easily.

It'll clear for sure. I'm running 19x10 +20, 285/30/19 Nitto INVO. I'm going to run 295/30/19 next.

Not a problem like everyone said Trevor! We do that fitment all the time. Nice choice in tire as well.

Clearance issues start around an ET of 10 at the rear with a wheel width of 9.5" and that size of tire... you are more than good to go.

Thanks for all of the responses! I have the new wheels/tires on the car, along with the Eibachs, and it clears easily. I'll have pics up this afternoon.
